The weekend went well and the kids had a blast. The only bad thing was that I inadvertently hurt another neighbors feelings when they saw the party photos on Facebook. Last year we had a big block party and even though is was a blast, this year we (meaning the core group of 3 families) decided to take it easy and just have a simple cookout and let the kids play. Last years party resulting in a lot of time and expense so we decided to down play things this year. I guess they felt excluded from the festivities and I feel terrible about that. I know what it's like to feel as though I'm on the outside and I would never want anyone else to feel that way. I of course apologized and tried to explain that they are welcome to anything, all they need to do it stop by. I feel bad but at the same time I don't feel like it's my job to be the neighborhood social committee. The other 3 families and I are always outside with the kids an d we didn't really see this as any different except we added food. This guilt will stay with me for a while because that's how I am. Inviting one more family would have meant inviting 5 more and then the idea of our simple intimate celebration would have been out the window.

|I love the sound these make when they are launched...Boom!|
So now I'm a little grumpy but trying to take the edge off with the last bit of wine I can find in the house and then it's up and running again tomorrow. Vacation will be here before I know it, I just have to make it.
Lastly I just wanted to know if anyone used Instagram. I am totally addicted! Would you like to follow me? You can find me there as: justmebrandi with lots of fun and filtered iPhone photos!
